The Spirit of Lisette

Post by Reepicheep » Thu Nov 10, 2005 1:17 pm

Here is the short, but eerie tale of the GH Girls "run in" with Lisette the weekend of the concert.

Part one:

Bethany and I drove up to Nashville together Friday evening and decided to take the time to go through our set and practice our vocals.
As we were singing, we got an overwhelming craving for for McDonalds fries, as disgusting as that is, and decided to stop in Manchester, which is roughly half way between Chattanooga and Nashville.
After we got off the off ramp, the music was at the first vocal section where all three girls sing, and we began to sing our respective parts ( "Why does the horse now tarry, while here he sits exposed" and "Run Lisette and become the wind, we must hasten now, lest we meet our end").
At the exact moment that began to sing, we looked out the window to our right, and in the middle of nowhere, stood a statue, a very, very LARGE statue of a galloping brown horse. Yes, strange indeed, and we both cried, "Lisette!!!!!"

Part two:

Around 1:30 P.M. on Saturday, the day of our performance, we had just finished lunch on the Belmont Campus and Susie, Bryan, baby Tyler and I were all walking together back to our dressing rooms.
Susie and Bryan were merrily strolling their little one, and I was walking along side with my trusty iPod and the GH set list playing.
I don't know who spotted it first, but suddenly, we all looked up-
Out of NO where, what can only be described as some sort of horse balloon, (or at least a very light weight toy) floated down from the sky and landed on top of one of the brick buildings, out of sight. Susie exclaimed, "It's Lisette!" and once again I was dumbfounded.
Was it the Spirit of Lisette?? Was it a good omen, or a bad omen?
Well, none of us were bitten or disemboweled, so I can only assume the beast was pleased with the song that was written in her honor.

What do you all think?

I think you had some of Ronald's "special" fries...

Mayhaps it is time for a fresh reminder of the Glory that was the horse Lisette. The link above will take you to the Memoirs of Baron Marbot, and the very same chapter which inspired our little tune :)
Enjoy...

Good omen, I would say. Lisette was one of my favorites at the concert.

Very funny! Lisette lives! But I just re-read the story, and the first Lisette sighting was before they consumed the "special" fries. By the way, I must be the only one who finds McDonalds french fries to be overrated....
And now for something completly different...

I find McDonald's to be overrated altogether. Somehow I don't think it's a true representation of Scottish food.

Run Lisette is my favorite hands down. Knowing the spirit is out there, though, is kinda scary.
Where does one purchase a witty and apropos signature?

For the record, I believe in my heart that McDonalds is evil, and disgusting as well.
But the fries are so tasty. I think I've only eaten there twice in the last 6 years, and it's only been for fries.

However, that doesn't make it any better since the fries are one of the worst things there.
Anyone else see Supersize Me? They left fries out for months, and they didn't even mold. Siiiiiiiiiiick. Gotta love those cancer causing preservatives.

McD's has sunk so for below the level of edibility it's not ven funny. it's the cheese- whatever they use for cheese is pure evil. I'm the biggest fat-food junkie you could find and I can't eat the stuff. I think I'd rather eat Krystals. But the fries are still the best.

Several years ago, I had an opportunity to go up on an airplane with a vanilla milkshake from McDonalds. Somewhere around 2000 feet or so, the shake began to defy the laws of natural science and physics and metamorphize into something that in no way resembled a milkshake. Perhaps, someone from the left brain side of the class could enlighten.

God Bless

They reheat their fries, and they just have flavoring tubs, with hamburger or fry flavors that they put on the food.

There's no need to eat McD's fries anyway. I jumped ship to Arby's curly-fries long ago. Run screaming from anything with the Arby's ersatz cheese on it, but the fries are lovely. There's just no reason to go into McD's any more, and I haven't for years. (When I get my semiannual craving for barf-burger, Burger King does the job. Ugh.)

Didn't see the movie, but that huy had an agenda. What is that, fast food is bad for you? Well DUH!!!! Next thing they will tell us is that cigarette smoking is also bad for you. But I happen to like those cancer causing preservatives. Nothing is worse than purely organic food. Chemicals are our friends!

Plus his body didn't have the proper training to survive McDonalds when he slammed it. It was only used to healthy food. That's like taking up drinking a pint of cheap vodka a day for a non-drinker.

Arby's is great overall but the fries are no comparison.
